Healthcare facilities are designed to improve the lives and health of patients. That said, these facilities are, by their very nature, riddled with germs — some of which can be highly contagious. As such, nurses, doctors, and other staff members must do their best to steer clear of infections while still providing the best possible care for their patients.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), healthcare providers might be required to wash their hands up to 100 times during a 12-hour shift. But even then, those within a health facility can get sick, as certain diseases linger on surfaces and get passed through the air. At The Budd Group, our medical office janitorial services ensure that the offices, cafeterias, and lobbies within a medical facility remain clean and properly disinfected.

What Do Medical Facility Cleaning Services Do?

What Do Healthcare Janitorial Services Do?

Healthcare cleaning providers are tasked with removing and preventing harmful foreign contaminants from the facility in order to maintain a sterile, safe environment. Healthcare facility cleaners employ a number of methods and perform various duties to achieve these goals, including, but not limited to:

  • Using disinfectants to clean all surfaces, including floors, walls, equipment, sinks, toilets, etc.
  • Properly disposing of hazardous materials and waste
  • Power washing the building’s exterior
  • Deep cleaning floors
  • ...and much more

To ensure the maximum health and safety of all patients and staff members, all of these duties must be informed by relevant cleaning guidelines for healthcare facilities.

This means that medical facility cleaning service workers receive specialized training regarding proper health and safety procedures, such as:

  • Proper hand and skin hygiene
  • Recognizing and following relevant signage, labels, and images
  • Bloodborne pathogen (BBP) safety
  • Basic safety requirements
    • Wearing & handling personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • HIPAA regulations
  • HazMat/HazCom procedures
  • Exposure control plans
  • Proper laundry handling
  • Sharp objects handling and precaution
  • Principles of microbiology

If any changes in cleaning standards in healthcare arise, workers must undergo new training protocols for proper compliance. While The Budd Group does not service patient rooms, ORs, or other areas of medical facilities where patients directly interact with practitioners, we do focus on offices, lobbies, cafeterias, and facility exteriors, deploying the necessary best practices to keep these facilities safe, clean, and compliant.

What Types of Facilities Require Medical Facility Cleaning Solutions?

Hospitals often require the most intensive healthcare janitorial services due to their size, occupancy, and range of potential illnesses. However, hospital cleaning is not the only task that falls under the category of healthcare cleaning. Indeed, every type of healthcare facility requires knowledgeable, properly-trained cleaning staff to ensure the continued health and safety of everyone inside. These facilities include:

  • Primary care facilities
  • Urgent care centers
  • Dental offices
  • Rehabilitation clinics
  • Assisted living centers
  • Outpatient facilities
  • Surgical facilities
  • etc.

Each of these facilities has unique needs and challenges and therefore demands individualized care. Once again, we focus on the lobbies and other non-medical areas of these facilities, which is crucial for maintaining a reputable and safe environment for patients, guests, and staff.
